"Why would I want to prearrange funeral services?"

Many people are opting to prearrange funeral services for either themselves, or for a loved one. There are many very different and personal reasons for these choices. Many people would rather pre-plan while they are not under any stress, and can approach the process objectively. Some people would rather not burden their family and friends with the logistical or financial burden funeral planning places on them. There are basically two methods of the pre-need program:    

      1. Pre-need only
      2. Pre-need with pre-payment

    The similarities and differences of the two programs are outlined for you below.
